Question: Will the 737 MAX be featured with the ("new") green exit sign aka 'running man' like on B787 or the red EXIT letter sign?

Avolon (the aircraft leasing firm from Ireland) issues a paper assessing the B737 MAX, with key findings being: MAX 8 remains the heart of the family; potentially strong placement demand for lessor’s forward MAX orders; demand for MAX 7 could be stimulated with a change in pricing strategy; a limited future of MAX 9 is likely; and the MAX 200 has a questionable future.

It will be the classic red EXIT letter sign

Keep in mind it's only a 'completion and delivery center' (so cabin interior, painting, other final finishings and tests before delivery, etc.), not an assembly line like the ones Airbus has in China and the US for the A320family.

Boeing is “concerned” over Jet Airways, which is grappling with financial woes, as the airline is a key customer. The airline has placed orders for 219 B737 MAX planes (!) and has taken delivery of only five of these planes. Furthermore, Jet Airways mulls grounding 23 B737s to cut losses, according to talks with pilot unions.

Boeing said market demand was strong enough to support an even higher production rate of 63 B737s per month but such an increase depends more on suppliers being able to keep up.
